Battle Reviews

A good, solid mission about protecting some craft. It includes, probably a few inside jokes, which may be hilarious for those who lived those days, but leaving all the rest of us in obscurity. However, the jovial mood of the names and the preparations of a major party is part of the role-playing in the mission. The fighting against the CRLs is intense, and it is quite challenging to fend off all those Y-Ws shooting torps, the X-Ws with missiles and a sneaky T-W that may, eventually, ruin your day if it's not immediately dispatched. All in all, a great mission with a substantial challenge, yet far from frustrating, that will give every pilot a good amount of solid fun and joystick wrestling. Do not miss this one.

On easy, this is a not very particularly interesting dogfight. The Interceptor you get has a decoy beam, so maybe it's significantly more difficult on higher levels. One of my wingmates crashed in to the ISD, and I almost got smoked by the ISD engine wash, so I think their COM's class C license should be revoked for this battle honestly. Can't recommend for fun, but I can say it's easy points.

That was a bit of good fun there. Not sure why to include the experimental TIE other than a gimmick. :D But, that's fine. Maybe will try it on hard one day and see whether it has any teeth.

Nice mission. Simple but bugless. I liked the presence of Astatine's Tug and the assassin, that was really good.

Funny the idea of the Beer machine and intensive dogfight with this Rebel CRS and his FG very near of your base ship.A explosive action, but mission is not difficult, also in hard.Recommended

A nice mission. I especially like the reference to crazy ol' BubbaX and the mad SCO. My only problem was with the positioning of the EH CRV. It often ends up shooting at the CRS Boa, but because it is underneath the Vanguard, it usually ends up hurting the poor ISD. That and the Vanguard shoots TK-2107 out of the sky. Opps. Get the name of that gunner I say. Still, all in all, its a very nice mission, especially considering the time frame restraints on making it.

A wonderful mission by CPT Daar Skeloria. He accentuated the plotline I gave him magnificently, making this mission as a result, he used all the ressources he had...As you can see by the uses of patches and he attempted to the best of his ability to give us a EH feeling to it. Funny in some bits, and my only reproach to Daar is...Why wasn't I there? :P

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


All EH fighters are missing either a hyperdrive or a hangar bay to return to once the mission ends; as a result they fly around in circles.

Due to CRL Python and Boa being so close to the Vanguard, their fighters will pass through the Vanguard when exiting their respective hangars, resulting in them dying instantly if they finish exiting the hangar inside the ISD.

Due to the combat being so close to capital ships, many fighters will crash into them.

ISD Vanguard will not initially start firing back at the CRL's attacking it.

Assassin is spelled incorrectly in the inflight messages.
